In this episode Hortweek editor Matt Appleby speaks with Garden Connect's Edwin Mejier.

Garden Connect creates online solutions to connect garden centres with their customers - websites, webshops and loyalty programmes.

The company recently had the BBC's Adam Frost speak at a 20th anniversary dinner.

Meijer is helping organise the International Garden Centre Association Congress, in the Netherlands from August 28-September 2.

He speaks about how his business grew in lockdown as retailers sold online and the differences between Netherlands and UK trading in garden centres, such as differing uptake of online and furniture sales in the two countries.
